With my oldest, I found that it was a long time before she didn't need me to remind her to use the toilet before she sat down to watch TV for example- otherwise she'd end up sitting in a puddle. I've found toilet training takes a lot of work on Mom's part- a lot more than I expected.
when my dd first pt, i had to remind her constantly in the beginning as she forgot/or didnt listen to her body urges/waiting till the last moment. even as she grew up she would have accidents once in a rare while.
very rarely does one go from diapers to underwears with no accidents. my dd had accidents for a couple of years after pt. rare ones but still accidents.

She has a problem going on now though....I have had her checked for UTI and diabetes due to frequent peeing and accidents. We see a urologist July 1, finally.
The point is, she will often try to say she just sat in water, so now I just tell her she needs to change her wet clothes and offer help if she needs it. (really why does it matter? wet is wet.)
