Shopping at Costco, for anyone, is an adventure in it of itself. Add a 17 year old into the mix who’s never been, and things get even more interesting (and entertaining).

Single Foster Dad, Peter Mutabazi experienced just that when he brought his new foster son out for his first ever Costco shopping experience. While some may say Peter is just a softie and lets the boy get what he wants, there’s more than meets the eye.

Peter's exercising "perfectly imperfect" parenting to ultimately become a better parent to his kids.

Watch as Peter uses the experience to learn more about his kids. What they love, their habits, the ways in which they negotiate, and so much more.
