When Mayim Bialik‘s sons Miles, 8, and Frederick, 5½, grow up, they’re going to be in for a big surprise.

During a Tuesday interview with Howard Stern, The Big Bang Theory star revealed that, in her kids’ eyes, her career is just being a mom.

“They don’t really know who momma is,” the former Blossom star tells Stern.

“My older son knows that people come up to me and say, ‘Big bang, big bang,’ and want to take pictures. But to them, they know me as the person who cleans the toilets and makes their breakfast.”

When it comes to her famous childhood role, “They’ve seen a Blossom doll, like the Barbie doll,” says the actress, 38. “My oldest son used to call it ‘the momma doll.’ He thought every momma had a Barbie doll.”

Mayim Bialik Tackles Her Boys’ Tough Questions

She plays a neuroscientist on TV, but The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik also happens to be one in real life, something that proved helpful when her sons, 4½-year-old Fred and 7½-year-old Miles, began asking about the birds and the bees.

“They’re very interested in where babies come from. That happened. We had a very explicit conversation about that,” she jokes to PEOPLE. “Fred is almost 5 and he was very late to talk, so he’s asking a lot of interesting, cognitive questions that he’s clearly been waiting years to ask.”

Bialik continues, “Many of them are biological, like, ‘Why do we have body hair? What’s that for? When will I get it?’ Fun things that scientist moms love to have their kids ask.”
