Hello,

I’m not a woman, but my wife and I do work from home and juggled what you are going through now. Yes it was two of us which made it more flexible and easier to manage.
We both learnt to factor in a buffer on delivery times to complete jobs.
Its all about managing the clients expectations.
I suggest you work it all out backwards.
What I mean is
1) Estimate the average impact your situation is creating for you on delivery times for your services.
2) Estimate what an average job takes in time.
3) Factor point 1 into point 2
4) From that you should be able to figure our how many clients you can safely take on.

I hope that made sense and helps.
On the upside it wont be like this forever before you know it they will be in school!
:)
