Tooth Fairy

One of Anna's teeth came out at school and she lost it, so she wrote a note to the tooth fairy to explain the situation. We were discussing wording, and I suggested she write something like "Can I have a coin anyway?" but Anna sharply cut me off. "No! You can't ask for money, or you won't get it!" She decided instead on a simple message saying that she wished she had the tooth.

She wasn't sure whether to write in English or Norwegian, so she wrote it in both:

Dear Tooth Fairy. I lost my tooth at school. I wish I had it for you.
Kjære Tannelv. Jeg mistet min tann på skolen. Jeg ønsker at jeg hadde det for deg.
