April the Giraffe Gives Birth

BUT IT WASN’T JUST POEMS IN OUR INBOX! WE ALSO GOT THIS LITTLE CRITIQUE FROM HAYDEN AT FIRELANDS ELEMENTARY, SHE WRITES:

I am tired of hearing about April the Giraffe and her baby. I think you should only talk about her when she has her baby.

OK, MAYBE WE DID GO A LITTLE OVERBOARD WITH THE APRIL LOVE – BUT I GUESS WE CAN TALK ABOUT HER NOW BECAUSE…IT’S A BOY!
THAT’S RIGHT, APRIL THE GIRAFFE, THE MOM-TO-BE WE WERE NOT-SO-PATIENTLY WAITING ON, FINALLY GAVE BIRTH – WITH ABOUT ONE-AND-A-QUARTER-MILLION PEOPLE WATCHING ON A LIVESTREAM.

AND IT’S A BOY! HE’S STILL A BIT CLUMSY THOUGH! OUCH! THE 15-YEAR-OLD NEW MOM AND BABY LIVE AT THE ANIMAL ADVENTURE PARK, IN NEW YORK. THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT A CALF WAS BORN IN THE PARK, AND OFFICIALS WILL HOLD A CONTEST TO NAME THE BABY BOY.
