myGirl: Oh! I can call my brother my sibling!
Daddy: Yep. You're very smart sweetheart.
'Nina' on television: Do you go to school with one of your siblings? That can be fun!
myGirl (to the television people): Nope. I do not go to the same school as my sibling.
myGirl (excitedly, to her dad): Hey, when I grow up and I have autism like Jake, we can go to the SAME SCHOOL!"
Daddy: Oh sweetheart, you aren't going to have autism when you're older.
myGirl (slightly deflated, then with building enthusiasm): Oh...well, that's okay. When I grow up, my girl will have autism, and SHE can go to the same school as Jake!"
Daddy: You mean your daughter?
myGirl: Yes, my daughter will have autism, and SHE can go to that school!
