Monday Morning Moms in Green Bay

Meet Melissa (MO) Roberts!


Q: What town/city do you live in?
A: Oneida

Q: How many kids do you have?
A: Two kids and one on the way in June!

Q: What are their ages?
A: 2.5 year old son, 15 month old daughter  & 18 weeks gestation 😉

Q: Do you work outside the home? If so, where/what do you do?
A: I do! I own Starz Gymnastics Academy in Ashwaubenon, so I’m a business owner and coach. I am also a brand partner with Nerium International – an anti-aging company focused on skin and brain health.

Q: What is your favorite at-home activity to do with your kids?
A: Dance Parties!

Q: Where is your favorite place around Green Bay to take your kids?
A: Honestly, with the kids being so young it is hard for them to sit and focus on much but they really enjoy going to Starz for Play Date on Wednesday and Friday mornings.

Q: What has been your biggest challenge in parenting thus far?
A: Good question… I think the most challenging thing has been having morning sickness and just being pregnant in general while having to take care of a toddler and a baby while owning two businesses. Aside from that, the two year old’s tantrums really get me going. Man, they can be doozies!     

Q: What is your favorite hobby when you have time for yourself?
A: What’s this thing you call “time to yourself”? Ha ha! Just kidding. I like to catch a nap if I can.

Q: Are you a night owl or an early bird (despite what you have to be as a mom)?
A: I’m a complete night owl.

Q: What is something not many people know about you?
A: I used to play the flute – I started in middle school and played all the way through college. I also LOVE to sing!

Q: What is your most embarrassing moment or the funniest thing that has happened to you?
Well, a little of both here. I woke up the morning of my wedding with half of my front tooth missing…and we were in Miami. I completely missed my hair and makeup appointments because I was at the dentist. Once I got back to the hotel I had only an hour to get ready before I needed to be on the beach to get married. I ended up getting the tooth filled in, my mom and sister helped get me ready, I was on time and nobody noticed that anything was off. Phew! That could have been bad!!

Thanks for sharing with us, Mo! Check back next week to meet another area mom!
