Yay! I can finally say farewell to diapers for good!
I was not expecting Joram to attain night dryness any time soon since he was only toilet trained a few months back. However, he surprised me with his willingness to avoid soiling his diapers when he sleeps. I used the same sticker system which worked for my no. 2. Of course, the attractive water-glitter stickers of his favourite vehicles helped too. He eventually achieved 20 nights of clean diapers (a star for each night) and was thus duly rewarded and tonight will be the first night he goes to bed in his underwear. Can you tell that I'm holding my breath? In anticipation of possible future "accidents", I also bought mattress protectors for him. Just in case. :P

It is almost as if he was so pleased with his own accomplishment that he suddenly impressed me by changing into his school uniform all by himself when it was time to catch the bus today. I had been teaching him to change himself since the beginning of the year with little result. He had a tendency to give up easily or put his hand into the wrong hole and get stuck. I started being concerned about his lack of coordination since his older sibling all could get dressed by themselves ever since they were 2 or 3 years old. Looks like I needn't have worried at all. Praise God for that!
