I am getting error can't add child . but am not sure why. the code works but it generates thousands of the same error.

# This file ModeDisplay.gd
var note= load("res://noteVew.tscn")

func _process(delta):

func genButtons():
    for i in numberOfNotesInDisplay:
        modeNotes[i].text = str(modText[MOD][i])

ERROR 0:00:02.814   add_child: Can't add child 'noteVew' to 'ModeDisplay', already has a parent 'ModeDisplay'.
  <C++ Error>   Condition "p_child->data.parent" is true.
  <C++ Source>  scene/main/node.cpp:1282 @ add_child()
  <Stack Trace> ModeDisplay.gd:153 @ genButtons()
                ModeDisplay.gd:123 @ _process()

I figured it out: I am creating the noteVew inside process. To fix it. I put the creation modeNotes.append(note.instance()) and addchild(modeNotes[i] under _ready.
