Where Have all the Mothers Gone?

As I work on a more lengthy entry with that title, a few observations come to mind.

The setting is 40 years ago, a moderate mid-western town. In the Summer, I’d play in the neighborhood as a child and there were lots of children, lots of mothers, lots of joy.

Today, in the same town, during the Summer, I, now a mother and grandmother,see some children playing, some in their homes, but where have all the mothers gone?
