Every person authorized by law to make a will may appoint by will, subject to the
approval of the probate court, a guardian or guardians for his or her minor children,
whether born at the time of making the will or afterwards, to continue during the
minority of the children or for a less time; provided, that, in the case of husband
and wife, the survivor, being otherwise qualified, shall be guardian of their children.
