Mayim Bialik has the perfect gig.

Her new role, as Amy in CBS' The Big Bang Theory, comes with a light work schedule. It's ideal for a mom of two who home-schools and tutors children in her spare time.

''Believe or not, being an actor I have more time to spend with my family,'' she explained via phone. ''I have a degree in neuroscience, and if I was doing research or working as a professor, I would probably never see my children.''

Big Bang also stars Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki. Oddly enough, Galecki played a boyfriend of Bialik on Blossom and Gilbert on Roseanne. ``He kissed me first and Sara second.''

Nowadays, there's not much smooching on set. ``It's a smart show, and we have good times together.''

But don't expect an Amy/Sheldon romance anytime soon. ``They both seem to be happy the way things are.''

Either way, Bialik is content. ``I'm honestly glad to be working. It's really been fun so far.''
