Mrs. Eborn is a stay at home mom and wife. She has many hobbies including sewing and other crafts. During the 2020 pandemic, she was doing her part by sewing masks during the shortage.
On May 6th, Mrs. Eborn couldn’t have asked for a better Mother’s Day gift than welcoming a new baby girl into the family. This makes baby #10 for the viral mom who shared a photo of her gorgeous baby girl just hours after she was born.
I spoke to her a few days before the birth.
Lyric: Does it annoy you when people ask, is this your last one or is this going to be your last baby?
Mrs. Eborn: Yes. Yes. Yes. Because one thing about us is, and this is very important, we don’t ask for handouts. I don’t ask anyone to help buy Christmas gifts, dinner for the night, uniforms, or anything. I own my own home, so if I’m having as many kids as I want, why is it bothering you?
Lyric: How do your older children react to the new additions to the family? Do they still get surprised?
Mrs. Eborn: The kids are generally happy. My oldest daughter (19) is already purchasing gifts for the baby! The boys have not a care in the world, and my 5 year old says, “c’mon mommy, just try to push the baby out. I want to see the baby!” (laughs)
Lyric: How did you meet Mr. Eborn?
Mrs. Eborn: Well, I met my husband when I was 10 years old in school. I’ve been with my husband since. We were off and on when we were just kids but…
Lyric: So you two are childhood sweethearts?
Mrs. Eborn: Yes, absolutely!
Lyric: When you posted the photos of you and your husband from back in the day, it’s so sweet. So many people are looking for that but it seems like it’s hard to make connections with people nowadays because of social media, socially awkwardness, and not to mention the pandemic. How does it feel to have known your husband for so long?
Mrs. Eborn: I love it! I don’t care if you met someone when you were younger or older, you have to know the person. A lot of people are getting with someone just for attention, clout or just to have a partner. They don’t know that person and they’re not comfortable with that person. When I hear other people say what they wouldn’t do around their partner or what they would be ashamed of, I say how can you be with someone if you’re ashamed to be yourself around them?
Lyric: Is Mr. Eborn a hands on dad?
Mrs. Eborn: Yes he is! If I’m home with the kids and they have appointments, he takes them to the dentist. The doctors and teachers know him just as much as they know me. He goes on trips with the kids, and picks them up from school. My husband and oldest daughter are the cooks in the house, because cooking is not my thing.
Lyric: That’s huge! How did she learn to cook?
Mrs. Eborn: She learned from my father and her father.
Self Care for A Mom of 10
Lyric: How do you stay in shape and looking beautiful with 9 children?
Mrs. Eborn: Chasing after 9 kids keeps you in shape! (laughs) But also, I’m not going to let myself go. I don’t care how many kids I have. I like to look nice, I like to do my makeup and I like to do my hair, and just because you’re a mom you don’t have to look beat down.
Lyric: I think it’s import for moms to have some self care whenever they can too. I don’t look my best 100% of the time, but I definitely think it’s important to take care of myself.
Mrs. Eborn: Don’t get me wrong, I’m a bonnet mom inside, but I would never step foot outside with a bonnet on.
Miscarriage at 17 Weeks
Lyric: Let’s talk about your emotional YouTube Video that went viral in which you shared your experience with a miscarriage. That video has 1.1 million views and counting. It was raw and real, and it wasn’t a glamour video. What made you open up so much and show us everything?
Mrs. Eborn: People were saying in the comments, why did you show that, and that should have been personal, but that’s a part of my life. My baby was not a secret.
Lyric: Right, and we all were expecting the baby. You had done many videos prior to that about having another baby.
Mrs. Eborn: Right, I didn’t expect the video to go viral. I made the video because I knew family and friends most importantly were going to be asking me about the pregnancy and how far along am I, and I was so sad and depressed about losing my baby that I didn’t want to talk to anyone. So, I thought if I make the video, I can record it and put it out for family and friends to see and they wouldn’t have to ask me any questions.
Lyric: I know it helped so many women that went through that or will go through that in the future.
Mrs. Eborn: I think it helps a lot of people that couldn’t talk about it. I never thought I would experience anything like that. I had 9 kids! But now look, a problem can happen, and to deal with it, you’ll be ok and you’ll work through it and you’re not alone.
Lyric: Your channel is really known for “What I got my 9 kids for…”
Mrs. Eborn: That’s all they wanna see from me! (laughs)
Lyric: It’s just an extravagant shopping video for moms and gift hauls. It’s so much fun to watch you pulling out more and more stuff!
Mrs. Eborn: I also want to slow down too and show people more budget friendly things. I want to show people that you don’t always need money to have fun with your kids. Sometimes I’ll leave invitations on their beds saying, you’re invited to something. Sometimes they just wake up in the morning and they see decorations. I just go right to Dollar Tree.
Lyric: What does the grocery shopping look like for a family of 11 soon to be 12?
Mrs. Eborn: When we do the main shopping we always have 2 shopping carts or better. My husband will go and take one of the kids. Everyday we need something, bread, milk, cereal. Whatever is missing, he’ll pick up from the store on his way home. So every day is a shopping day. Most of the time we need 2 people for the main big shopping.
