The reason it didn't accept that is because you were paraphrasing.

My parents - Mis padres

My mum and my dad - Mi mamá y mi papá

I said "my mama and my papa are teachers" and papa was marked incorrect but "dad" was marked correct. Where I grew up, people are as likely to say "papa" informally as they are to say "dad". I don't this should be marked this way.
