Sesame Street: I Love My Hair

YouTube Link

This song was written by Daddy who was sad that his little girl wanted long, blond, and straight hair instead of her own beautiful hair.
Joey Mazzarino, the head writer of Sesame Street, is also a Muppeteer who wrote the song for his daughter. Mazzarino is Italian. He and his wife adopted their 5-year-old daughter, Segi, from Ethiopia when she was a year old.

What really tickles me about this story is that my own daughter is in love with Tiana and wants to look just like her. My daughter has told me several times that she wished she had curly hair instead of stick straight hair.  When she watches this video she is going to want curly hair even more.

All little girls are perfect just the way they are.  If you don't believe me just ask their mommy and daddy.

Thank you Mr Mazzarino for this vid. My little girls is 3 and she loves it. When my daughter was born, I knew instantly that I needed to get ride of the relaxed hair and embrase my natural hair. Like you I want my daughter to love who she is the way I love her.
