Happy 8th Birthday, Wiggles! – Conversations with Stella and Wiggles

I am Stella, Queen of the Olde English Bulldogges. Today is special. I don’t know why.
Me:  Today is Wiggles 8th birthday! Happy Birthday, Wiggles!
Wiggles:  I’m not sure what that means.

Stella:  Well, one thing it does not mean is cake. We will not be having cake today. This is a cake-free zone.
Me:  It means that you were born eight years ago today.
Wiggles:  I’m not sure what that means either.
Me:  Well, your mom gave birth to you eight years ago.
Wiggles: What is a year?
Me:  It’s a way humans have of counting time.
Wiggles:  Was eight years a long time ago?
Me:  For some purposes.
Wiggles:  Does this mean that I am old now?
Me:  I don’t think of you that way. I still think of you as you were when you first came. You were a little over a year old then.
Wiggles:  A lot has happened since then.
Stella:  I’ll tell you one thing that hasn’t happened. Cake. Cake doesn’t happen around here.
