I know something has to change but I feel bad doing it

Everyday I arrive at the school to pick up the boys.  I get there at 2pm because that’s been the routine and it gives me some peace and quiet for an hour. 

Everyday Gavin insists on coming with me.  

He just sits in the passenger seat, listening to his music through his headphones.  The other thing he does is get up, buzz the front door of the school and use the bathroom.  He does this multiple times in the course of one hour. 

If he doesn’t  do this, he sits next to me doing the potty dance. 

The potty dance is something that drives me crazy.  I know it’s not his fault but it just bothers me for some reason.  We all have our little quirks. 

I’m to the point where I think I’m going to have him just stay home because it’s getting ridiculous. This is really the only time of day I get to myself and I appreciate that he wants to come with me but this whole thing is getting a bit frustrating for me.  I know it’s frustrating for him as well. 
I think that I’ll have him stay home on Tuesday and take a little break from this whole thing.  

I feel bad doing that but A) I need the time to myself and B) he can’t keep disrupting the school by ringing the buzzer and using the bathroom.
