Never would I have imagined Elfred’s hat would detach from his head and cause him to fall to the bottom of our clock. My kids found him face down like this:
Major mommy fail. Hat was still dangling from the rope and it appeared beloved Elfred had fallen to his demise. Kids were very upset. Quick thinking daddy told them that he was sleeping, and assured the little ones that he still had his powers and was okay.
Once the kiddos were at school I reattached Elfred to the clock. This time NOT from his hat. Lesson learned. The hat is loosely attached with a tape-like glue product. I won’t be trying that again.
