      Hmm I like that if you stretched out the DNA from all the cells in our body it would reach to the moon and back over 800 times – thats pretty amazing.

      I also like the fact that part of what made you “you” was in your grandmother (your mum’s mum) before your mum was even born!!! This is because the egg from your mum to make you would aready have been inside your mums ovaries before she was actually born. Girls make all the eggs they will ever have in their lifetime before birth while in the womb.

      Flipping AWESOME!! 🙂
