Shall I stay working PT or take a leap to FT

Been working in a job share for a couple of years and now kids are both at school I could do a few extra hours which would help financially but also help with the frustrations of being overlooked as I'm part time - I would be more visible! Apparently the only option is to go full time - so nothing in between job share (roughly half time) and full time. Plus to get a promotion the only way is to go full time. I feel frustrated as ideally for family life I need something in between but it seems you can't have your cake and eat it. If I go full time the money would help and potentially DH could reduce his hours as he's struggling with anxiety but I'm worried it may stress me out too much and then the kids will have two parents barely functioning! Also if I go full time there is no way of going back to a job share. Any advice in weighing up the pros and cons would be appreciated.
