In fact the actress, who played genius Amy Farrah Fowler in the long-running CBS sitcom which aired its final episode back in May, said she’s returned to the ‘most secure job in the universe,’ that is being a stay-at-home-mum.
The 43-year-old actress revealed that she has come full circle: the last time she was a stay-at-home mum was prior to joining The Big Bang Theory, when her two sons were just 18 months old and three-years-old.
The actress insists that she still does phone interviews, attends meetings, and goes to ‘therapy and taekwondo.’
‘I miss the tenderness of being a mom to an 18-month-old and three-year-old,’ she said.
‘But now I get to be a partner with them in a whole new way. And I’m not their friend, but our relationship is much more sophisticated and mature now.’
Her sons are now 10 and 13 years old, and she talked about how she mothers them on her YouTube channel.
‘Now that The Big Bang Theory is over, everybody’s asking me: “What are you doing now? They ask it in the supermarket, they ask it in synagogue, they ask it at the gym, when I drop my kids off at classes… I get it. Everyone wants to know what I’m doing now.
‘Well I like to joke that I crawled back under the rock that I was under when I auditioned for The Big Bang Theory.’
She declared: ‘The rock of being a mum.’
But far from being a negative thing, Bialik was quick to talk about how much she enjoys it, even as she misses her children being smaller.
Reminiscing about having to feed her young son ‘every two hours’ and not having them out of her sight for ‘less than 60 seconds,’ she said: ‘Another amazing and profound thing about being a stay-at-home mum again is the realisation that they don’t need me the same way anymore. This has been kind of rough.’
‘This is new for me,’ she admitted.
‘I’m used to being the attentive, present mum. I’m used to whipping out carrot sticks like they’re a six shooter. I’m used to putting Band-Aids on boo boos. I’m used to nursing away hunger and pain and fear…like, I’m used to being the most important person in their lives. Now I’m a presence in a new way.’
Matter of fact, she concludes in the clip, she doesn’t feel unemployed in the slightest.
‘I feel like I am back to having the most secure job in the universe. Why is it the most secure job? Because it is the job I will have for the rest of my life, no matter what. I will always be their mom,’ she concluded.
The Big Bang Theory cast is moving on from the show. Kaley Cuoco, who has been with the series since its inception in 2007 is being lined up for an R-rated Harley Quinn DC animated series, where she is set to take on the title role.
Speaking to People, Kaley is also clearly loving the newfound freedom, saying: ‘I f**king love it. It has been so much fun, because like Lake, I have a little bit of a potty mouth myself. And it’s been great to be able to just scream and cuss and fight and be the badass that Harley Quinn is.’
