A family's school year routines dissolve into chaos in the summer, to be replaced by a schedule as loose fitting as a beach coverall and just as informal. It is the same every summer, but mothers stubbornly attempt again each year to pull together something that resembles a daily routine, even if it is only a meal or a bath. (OK. Maybe not a bath.) I am watching this happen again this year, and I have to laugh. Such good intentions. Such determination. And it will all have fallen apart by the Fourth of July.

As a mom of three boys in a sports-loving household, I am no stranger to discussing the day in sports at the dinner table: the Top 10 plays of the week, the wise picks for fantasy football and predictions for upcoming games. Last month, I found myself unprepared for a discussion that came up about Mo'ne Davis, the 13-year-old Little League female baseball phenom. "Isn't it great that Mo'ne Davis is kicking butt at the Little League World Series?" I said with enthusiasm as I poured the milk.

Years ago we had 3-digit and 4-digit gambling, and over the years Maryland has offered several ways to gamble. But now we've hit the jackpot - we have casinos ( "Horseshoe says casino drew 50,000 in opening weekend," Sept. 2). Some will spend their last dollar hoping to win big, but it's always the casino that wins. Who benefits from all the gambling we have now? Maryland state government. It can't seem to get enough of our hard-earned money. I dare say there are children going to bed hungry because mom or dad spent their money at the casino.

I just read Susan Reimer 's wonderful column in The Baltimore Sun and it took me back through the past six months to relive the amazing experience my son Thomas and the boys have been through ("Collabro hits all the right notes," July 19). It has been one hell of a roller coaster ride, ups and downs, twists and turns and it's all still crazy and go, go, go for the boys. I can't tell you how proud I am of Thomas and I know all the other boys have tremendous support from their families.

This letter is regarding MOM's Organic Market being considered for the space vacated by Giant in the Rotunda ("Rotunda redeveloper taking fresh look at MOM's Organic Market" Mar 20). This small boutique grocery will not meet the needs of the community. The seniors who live nearby need a full-service grocery such as Graul's. It is sad to see seniors struggling up and down the hill to Giant. Those who wish to shop at Mom's can easily drive there for their organic products. Stephanie Charles, Baltimore

LAST YEAR 20th Century Fox released a little film it made for around $18 million, which is lunch money in Hollywood. It was called "Home Alone," and was about a small boy accidentally left behind while his family went to France on vacation.You could tell it was a fantasy because his parents flew first class and left the kids to their own devices in coach without being arrested by customs agents or spat upon by their fellow passengers, and the family lived in the kind of house you dream of owning if you ever win Lotto, with no fingerprints around the light switches.

You might wonder what kind of relationship the creator of "Serial Mom" would have with his own mom. It turns out John Waters shared an exceptionally close bond with his mother, Patricia Waters , who died Saturday at age 89. Waters told me in the fall that he and his mother had been going on Sunday adventures in Baltimore, revisiting places that were meaningful to the filmmaker, who had grown up in Lutherville and moved to the city as...

L ast week was a tough one for Michael Phelps . I am betting it was equally tough for his mom. Baltimore's Olympic champion swimmer was photographed smoking dope and, by week's end, the give-the-kid-a-break public reaction had turned ugly. USA Swimming suspended him from competition for three months, and Kellogg's Frosted Flakes dropped him. Worse, a columnist compared him to dog-killer Michael Vick, and another declared that he had disgraced the nation. There were camera crews following him and reporters were using megaphones, shouting at him to appear.

Taking months off from work and everyday responsibilities is something no one is ready for - especially a mother preparing for a new addition to her family. This is the situation Ellicott City resident Joannie Reisfeld found herself thrown into when she was placed on bed rest for two and a half months before the birth of her son, Zach. “I was used to being in charge of laundry and food, and you have to give up control at that point, and that can be very frustrating,” says Reisfeld, who delivered her now healthy 24-year-old son 10 weeks early at only 2 pounds, 10 ounces.

A nimals have done it since the beginning of time. Women in Asia and Africa have done it for centuries. But lately, more women in Western cultures are turning to an ancient practice.  Following childbirth, they are ingesting their placenta - after it's been steamed, dehydrated and put into capsules.  These new mothers and some health practitioners say this tissue, which nourishes the baby in utero, can also nourish the mother. Limited published research suggests ingesting the placenta, or placentophagia, also helps with lactation and postpartum depression because of the hormones it contains.  The idea has gained popularity as celebrities share their experiences with placenta.

Keith Kratz grew up in White Hall in northern Baltimore County with happy memories of visits to the general store just across the two-lane street from his home. "It was a mom-and-pop convenience store back then," he said. "There was even a gas pump out front. " Kratz, 49, hasn't strayed far from his roots. In fact, he purchased that general store in 2001 for $170,000. His intention was to turn the property, sitting on 2.2 acres, into a home for himself and commercial space for his landscaping business, Outdoor Expressions.
BUSINESS

The idea for the business came to Greg Vetter shortly after a friend swiped a two-liter bottle of his mom's homemade lemon-garlic salad dressing from his refrigerator. Inspired by the lengths someone would go to for a dressing by "Tessemae," his mom's nickname, Vetter challenged her: If he got Whole Foods to sell the dressing, she would go into business with him. "She said, 'That's never going to happen,'" he recalled. Five years later Vetter, 31, is CEO of an Essex-based company - Tessemae's - that makes the top-selling dressing in the produce department at Whole Foods.

Michael? Michael, honey? It's mom. No. Not your mom. Not Debbie Phelps. But I am the mother of a couple of kids just your age, and I thought I'd offer you the advice I'd give them if they were about to step into an unfamiliar world. You have spent most of every day in a pool since you were 11 years old, and you are retiring from that life at the ripe old age of 27 as the most decorated Olympic athlete and the greatest swimmer of all time. Your future is a blank screen. You are rich and you are famous, and so you must be careful if you do not want to follow other famous athletes into scandal or financial ruin.

Steven Sugg says that as his family gathered recently for the funeral of his wife, Darlene, he couldn't help but think that the strength of their 17-year-old daughter, Megan, had carried the family through its difficult time. "Megan has kept it together for us," he said. Darlene Sugg, 47, had battled cancer for years, but she wanted to see her daughter, a senior at Glen Burnie High School, graduate before she died. That seemed increasingly unlikely, though, as her health worsened and commencement was still a month away.

When Mary Agnes McCarville and Fred Lewis met as students at the University of Delaware in 1949, they naturally had no way of knowing where their courtship would lead. Today, after 63 years of marriage, the Clarksville parents of 10 recently had something special to celebrate besides their remarkable good health and their large, close-knit family. With all of their children in attendance, Mary Agnes Lewis, 86, was honored by the Baltimore Area Council of the Boy Scouts of America on May 1 as their first Eagle Scout Mom of the Year for helping all seven of the couple's sons become Eagle Scouts.
