    Well, that was fun! I am sorry I missed seeing this until today.

    Another fun fact is that mothers, even decades after giving birth, often carry cells from each of their children. And it gets even more interesting:

    “What’s more, cells from several generations could mingle in a single
    person. Because cells also flow from mother to fetus, a pregnant woman
    possesses cells from both her mother and her child, and that child could
    inherit his grandmother’s cells.”

    Family ties, indeed.
