Can a mother somehow either influence the DNA or influence changes in addition to the DNA of their offspring?

So when my son Aiden was in my wife’s womb, my wife had a growth on her ear. It may have been a fungus, I don’t know, but it was just a little bump. Well, Aiden was born and wouldn’t you know he has a skin tag in the exact same spot.

Shout coincidence all you want, coincidence just doesn’t cut it for me. Somehow, this change in my wife was passed down to my son. I can’t prove it, but how likely is it that my wife had a growth in the exact same place on the exact same ear as my son’s ear tag? If I apply Occam’s Razor, I have to be honest, it is more likely that the fetus took after the mother than it was two random natural occurrences happened in the exact same place on the exact same ear.

Could the theory of slow evolution over time be slightly off. Maybe it still takes generations, but it is way faster than previously believed. If my son was able to make this small evolution, based on the mother, perhaps other changes that occur in the mother are passed down to their children.

So what is my theory? My theory is that a mother can somehow either influence the DNA or influence changes in addition to the DNA of their offspring.

If this theory is true, think about how the scientific view of evolution would change?

Of course, I am just a software developer, what do I know? Maybe it was just some random fluke.
