  • A good episode to showcase Tabitha's growing magical powers when she attends pre school for the first time.

    It's time for Tabitha to head off to pre school for the first time and Samantha has more worries than the average mother because she is concerned that Tabitha will use witchcraft in front of others.

    Her fears turn out to be justified when the class, with the teacher playing Mother Nature, are assigned creatures to become. Young Amy is told she is to be a toad but she gets upset, stating that she wants to be a butterfly. Tabitha decides to grant her 'wish' and turns her into one, whereby Amy flies out the window and Samantha has to go all over town with a butterfly net trying to catch her, much to the alarm of several onlookers.

    With Amy safely back to her normal self, Samantha continues to worry about whether or not Tabitha should be around mortal children until she is old enough to know when and where to use her magical powers.
