    Smile Papi's hair

    Hello.
    Would you tell me what "Papi" means in this context?
    Is it another word for "daddy"? Or is it any a kind of doll or something?
    Thank you.

    I glance around at some of the other kids in the room.
    Some have hair and some wear hats.
    One little girl has thin wisps on her head the remind me of my Papi's hair.

    Sometimes "papi" is used for "grandfather". Where is this text from?

    "Papi" is also Spanish for father.

    Papi is a French word commonly used by children to name their grandfathers.
