In a brand-new vlog published to Facebook on Thursday, the Big Bang Theory star opened about her unfavorable experience with a moms support system when she initially ended up being a mother 13 years back. As you might understand, the starlet shares 12- year-old child Miles and 9-year-old child Frederick with ex-husband Michael Stone

The 42- year-old shared:
“When I was a new mom, 13 years ago, I went to a ‘mom’s group’ at a local retail store. I instantly felt out of place. I used cloth diapers. I didn’t use pacifiers or bottles. I didn’t have fancy clothes and neither did my baby. I didn’t have a manicure. I mean, I barely had time to shower. How was I gonna have time to get a manicure?”
Mayim went on to state that the moms would compare their children in almost every classification, and there was a mediator who asked concerns like, “Why does my baby want to be held so much?” and “Which brand of baby shampoo smells best?”
The Blossom alum stated in reaction:
“As for me, I assumed my baby wanted to be held so much because it was a human, mammal baby. Women at this moms’ group were encouraged to brag about how fast their labor was, how precocious their babies were with pooping, rolling over, sitting up, smiling.”
The competitive nature of the relationship in between mamas started to issue the superstar:
“Everything was a competition. These were not my people. I left in tears … Moms are so competitive! Why is that? Is it because we’re just catty and combative by nature? Is it because we’re bored and we have nothing better to do?”
The outspoken star provided this thinking:
“I think that competition comes about because we are the first generation of women who were raised after the revolutionary turmoil of the women’s movement and were the first generation who was constitutionally raised to believe that we can and should do it all.”
She concluded on a favorable note:
“Let’s get back to a model of camaraderie that reduces competition, fosters friendship and empathy and increases the success of a society that is built on the foundation principles of woman-to-woman support, which has sustained our species for so long, so well. We can only do this together.”
