you can syndicate any boat you row
I was driving with my niece and her 10 year old daughter and my almost-five nephew a few weeks ago, around the windy hilly roads of West Saugerties and Woodstock, and I’m not sure how we got to singing Row, Row, Row Your Boat in 3-part round, but we did. Mimi has a beautiful voice, and Kat has her mother’s musicality, her voice sweet and true. Mila and Kat sang one part from the back seat, Mila hanging on well even when the song got complicated. Mimi and I each sang one of the other parts. I was tickled at how good we sounded, and I wished I had done this with my kids. Yeah, I used to sing to them when they were little, but once I wasn’t rocking them to sleep that stopped. I’m self-conscious about singing (thanks Mr. Blish!) so you won’t hear me breaking into song unless you’ve smuggled yourself into the trunk of my car. Probably not, anyway.
