I am 14 but need advice from impartial parents.

Before I even ask this I want to say that my mother is a loving, caring mother. I am just surprised by something that happened today & want to know what the legalities are & whether or not this is common.

Growing up I was spanked a couple of times as a last resort, but very rarely. It hasn't happened in years (since I was like 10?) & I havent even been threatened since I was around 12. The last few days my sister & I have been bickering....which is not normal for us, but it was getting really out of hand. Mom talked to us, tried taking away TV/phone, finally she grounded us from each other's rooms & said if we kept it up she'd give us a spanking. I was shocked, &, to be honest, didn't take her seriously. This morning I went in my sister's room to look for some clothes of mine. My sister came back, we started bickering, she started saying I wasn't allowed in her room, etc, I lost my cool & shoved her. Just about then my mom appeared. She was livid at both of us for bickering, & me for being in my sister's room (all understandable). At that point she took me to my room to "talk" to me. Little did I know she also expected to make good on her threat. She told me I'd be getting the spanking, I argued but didn't resist, she had me bend over my desk, and spanked me over my underwear with a ping pong paddle hard enough to REALLY hurt, but not hard enough to bruise or anything. It was about ten pops. Afterwards she gave me a hug, but reminded me I had had a clear warning.

I know I was in the wrong with my actions, so I'm not looking to feel vindicated against my mom. And I'm NOT looking to get her in any trouble.

This just came from so far out of the blue, and was so unexpected to me, and I just don't know anyone who gets spanked at my age (or if they do, they don't admit it) that it leaves me curious: 1) Is this legal at my age? 2) Is this common?
