Long ago I had a teacher (in 7th grade) who corrected our grammar constantly. Someone in class would say, "I'm done." To which she always replied, "Cookies and cakes get done; children get finished".
I've often found myself correcting the boys in the same way. Just tonight HoneyBunny told me that he was "done with dinner" and I found myself once again correcting him with the mantra "cookies and cakes get done; children get finished" to which he quickly replied ... "Well, I thought I might get done since I AM the color of a gingerbread cookie".
I couldn't help but scoop him up for a long hug and good dose of gingerbread love. I love that little guy!
