What is it about the Car?

So my typical morning starts when my 7 year old gets up at an ungodly hour of about 6am and proceeds to grumble and stomp and grrrrrrrrr and maybe he'll read until everyone in the house is up. I usually have them dressed and with breakfast on board by 7:30 so we can be in the car by 7:45 for school. But, everyday as I send the kids out into the garage to get into the car the fighting, the battling begins, I can't even pee when i hear, " Stop hitting me", " Get out of my seat", " Stop pinching and pulling my hair". Every morning it starts off usually okay and it ends up with me breaking up a full all out battle in the car, usually someone needs a shirt changed from whatever was thrown at them and mommy is screaming. Why is this? What is it about the car?

Another question about the car is, I have 4 of the same booster seats but each child has to sit in his seat or life is just not liveable. We will have full all out temper tantrums if they are not sitting in their specific seats. My little one happened to pee on his seat recently, as usual, I toweled it down but haven't washed it yet, my 6 year old wanted to sit in it, I told him not to, gave him the reason why, but he didn't care. Full all out screaming ensued, so I let him sit in it. Tell me that he didn't smell like pee going to school? I'm surprised the school didn't call me for to have his clothes changed. Its madness I'm telling you.

On my training front, tempo run today, hard effort, why are they so hard? I know I have to put the work into my run this off season, my swim is good and bike is coming along fairly strong but my weakness has always been my run. This is going to be really hard for me both mentally and physically to turn this around this season and I'm looking forward to it everyday. I think starting off the day battling with my kids leads me to being very successful in my workouts and getting all my adrenaline out of my body. I can tell you there is nothing better then a great workout. When I see my kids I am balanced and refocused and life is good again. Until someone cracks someone over the head, or pees on them or something, then the cycle starts all over again.....Are there any gyms open 24/7?
