Madre can also be mama

Not 100%

Madre = mother.
Mum/Mom = mamá.

This is the perfect translation, as there are 2 different words in English, mother is more formal, and mum more affective, the same also happens in Spanish.

"Ni Madre" was typed instead of "M" in Mi Madre unfortunate typo.

It's not considered a typo, as "ni" is really a Spanish word, that does exist.

But in the context it is a typo.

I like how this is level 3, and it's probably the easiest question so far.
