Maddox is completely self-sufficient in reading now. It is unfortunate for me though. I used to be able to trick him or spell words I didn't want him to hear, but no more! He is currently quite obsessed with Transformers. He's saving his money to try and accumulate all of the action figures!

Luckily, I saved a VCR after replacing with DVD players.
