Win’s criteria for a wife

Win asked me about last names and why we are called Henderson.  In explaining it to him I told him that when Harriet grows up she might get married and she might decide to get a new last name.  Win announced that he wanted Harriet to be his wife.  I remember thinking this about my brother too.  I began explaining to him that he was probably going marry someone that he hasn’t met yet.

He asked “Where is she?”

I replied, “I don’t know, you’ll have to look for her.”

He then said, “I will look in all of the houses to see which is the cleanest.”

I have no idea where he got this idea or why he said this.

  • Janna - I can honestly say that I never went through a phase of wanting to marry one of my brothers :)

  • Rachel Henderson - I totally went thought a phase of wanting to marry one of your brothers! I’m still in that phase. Watch out Jessie, I’m coming for Jason.

  • jess - haha! see, it’s already ingrained in win’s brain that he needs a wife who can keep house! they must be born that way.

  • Cherry - First visist here. Cute boy.Maybe he thought the cleanest girl is the best one:)

  • Sarah - Win is hil-ar-i-ous these days! Good thing that was not on Jamie’s list of criteria… :)
