The Queen in My Family
My mother is a queen in my family, because she has the supreme power in my house. Everybody must listen to her and follow her way. If you do not, you will be punished, including my father.
My mother is average weight and average height. My father is ten years older than her. When they stayed together the people all said, “Oh, your wife looks very young and beautiful!” When she heard that, she always said, “See! You are so lucky that you can get married with me!” We thought she was very narcissistic.
My mother is a talkative woman. Sometimes we felt she was very annoying. She always argued with my father. It was very funny to see them. My mother was taller than my father. When they argued, my mother always used her finger and pointed at my father’s head and my father looked like a kid who did something wrong. That was why he always lost.
But we still love her, because it was not easy to raise four children. Nobody helped her to take care of us. She was the first person who got up and she did all the housework every day. We knew she was very exhausted but she didn’t say anything.
Right now I am a mother, so I know how my mother felt. She is a great mother in my heart, and I hope my kids will love me as I love my mother.
