Mom and Max are getting married.  And Dad has moved back from Paris.  Mom and Dad are sharing custody of Amber Brown.  Dad had Thanksgiving so now Amber will be spending Christmas with Mom and Max.  This should be interesting since Max is Jewish and they are now celebrating both holidays.  It could be good.  But Amber really wants to get her ears pierced.  Mom says no.  Maybe if she asks Dad, he'll say yes.  But is this fair to her parents?  Should what she wants be what she gets?
