If you want it bad enough, you would be amazed at what you can (and will) do.
I am a solo parent to ds, full-time elementary school teacher and a full-time graduate student.
How do I do it? I want it... I love grad school. I love the future possibilities of my new career. It's my ultimate passion. Honestly, my classes are often like a vacation for me.
Practically speaking, I ask for help when I need it. Plan ahead. Keep life as simple as possible. And... I am nice to myself when times get overly crazy and stressed. I have two mantras: "Stay in the moment" & "This too shall pass."
It sounds like you aren't working now? If that is correct, then this will be additional income you could put towards hiring someone to help you? You also wouldn't have to pay your current tuition yourself (or at least are reimbursed). My DP is going to be moving out of state a month or 3 ahead of me for a better paying job, but our income will be lower because I'll be hiring someone to help me while he's gone.
In your position I would grab that opportunity with both hands and use it to prove how great you are.
