It’s episode 50 and Mabel’s Labels maven and mom of six Julie Cole is here! We cover a lot of ground in this conversation: the celebrity customers that her multimillion dollar business has attracted, parenting (before and during COVID-19, including how she mobilizes the older kids to help the younger ones learn at home); organizing schedules, paperwork, clothes, toys and all the “stuff” that comes with a big family; plus being a special needs mom (her oldest child has autism), and I ask her my most pressing parenting question: how does she stop sibling bickering??? Julie also opens up about her separation and the “nesting” style of coparenting that’s working for her family, plus much more!
