How do I incorporate the of the node of a scene that spawns another scene, into a variable in the spawned scene?

var lion_scene = load (“res://a_lioness/newlion15_nb.tscn”)
var lion_instance = lion_scene.instance()
path_to_node = (lion_instance.get_path())
get_node(path_to_node).mother = self

edit: underscores have been stripped out after I post and things put in italics. get underscore parent, add underscore child, get underscore path, get underscore node.

Above works in my project. I orientate the spawned kinematic body toward the variable “mother” - why I needed something to identify the spawning node by. It appears I did not need the A KinematicBody:number works :slight_smile:
