Single foster dad, Peter Mutabazi has his hands full when he decides to take his 7-year-old on a shopping trip to Costco.

Will he survive the multiple requests for snacks and junk food?

Will he give in?

Will his 7-year-old gorge himself on food court pizza and ice cream?

How does Peter survive? He believes “a good sense of humor goes a long way.”

What does his 7-year-old think of his dad’s skills?: “I wouldn’t say you’re perfect but you’re good.”
