Wednesday's Wisdom: Zookeeper or Muffler Man?

This subject seems to find its way into a preschoolers conversations a lot.  During one of these discussions, J gave us his answer:

J: So, I think I really want to be a zookeeper when I grow up.

Me: Wow! How fun!  Do you know what you do for that type of job?

J: I suppose you get to pet the animals.

Me: Well, yes, but there is a lot more.  You have to clean up their poop, I know that for sure.  ( I said this not to discourage him, but to give an example of the truth!)

J: (with a disgusted face) Uh, maybe I won't be.  Maybe I'll just be a muffler man. ;)

Me: (to give him some light) Well, you also get to feed the animals, give them baths and sometimes you get to teach them tricks!

J: Oh! Well then maybe I can do both jobs. 



  1. That's hilarious. A "muffler" man. Kids are so clever.

  2. Woooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow /Hey thanks man!! you are so good. I think this the perfect work.


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are...leave a comment! :)
