@serenity She lasted quite a few years maybe about four. She was actually a full time maid. She was okay at first. But then as the years went by she started hurting me and my sister. Not as painful but just little things like pulling our hair or pinching us or spanking us. The thing is my mom never hurt us so what right does she have to do that? Oh I am very sorry to hear that. It is so sad that she died that young. You are right though. At least she has spent most of her life with you and your siblings. Most parents live long but spend so much time at their work. Your mom's time was very well spent with you.
