Here’s Mayim, who was in Boston with Texas Instruments promoting “Stem Behind Hollywood” with Kveller contributing editor Carla Naumburg (whose forthcoming book on mindful parenting is now available for pre-order on Amazon!).

Meet Mayim Bialik, The Babysitter

mayim bialik blog for kvellerFor the first time ever, I took care of someone else’s kids for a full 24 hours. It actually turned out to be more like 28 hours, but who’s counting?

The kids in question were one of my closest homeschooling mama friend’s daughters. The girls are 8 and almost 6 and I have known them since their mom and I met in prenatal yoga when we were pregnant with our firstborns.

We took questions from the audience, as well as from the moderator, Pauley Perrette (from “NCIS”).

There was a red carpet before and the event tends to be on the casual side, but since I don’t wear pants and my idea of casual is a denim skirt, black 3/4 T-shirt and Payless flats, I was nervous about what to wear, since I tend to inevitably look overdressed because of my tznius (modesty) choices. I barely understood why stylist Ali told me to wear what I wore, but my outfit got rave reviews. Go figure. (If I learned one thing from my make-over on “What Not To Wear,” it was to not trust myself in anything fashion-related and listen to someone who can be trusted.)  Read the rest of this entry →
