            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Harrison County, Craig M. Dreismeier, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Bower, C.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, C.J.  Dissent by Greer, J.  (10 pages)

            Desirea Tritz appeals from a ruling denying her application to modify child custody.  She contends there has been a material change of circumstances warranting a change to the shared-cared arrangement currently in place for the child she shares with Jameson Landon.  OPINION HOLDS: After our de novo review of the record, we agree with the trial court’s conclusion there has been no showing of a material change of circumstances such as would allow the modification of child custody.  DISSENT ASSERTS:  I respectfully dissent.  I believe the mother has shown a material change in circumstances.  For that reason, I would reverse the district court order and grant physical care to the mother.
