Just explain what you meant to your mom. If she doesn't understand, than that's just sad.
I'm sure that if you just explain her your mistake, she'll understand. She's your mother. If she doesn't, then well..
Also, if you aren't confident with your explanation, I'm sure that the reason people use past tense for these particular things is because they're referring to themselves as children. People who love their parents now may not have as much or at all as children and vice versa, for another situation. Good luck with your explanation and I hope all goes well!
Oh good grief, your sister is a tattle tail. It was an honest mistake, and I'm sure you meant "used to" as in "when you were a child". Just explain it to your mom, and tell your sister to cool it.
