Mama to three crazy, wonderful kiddos: dd1--12/2002, dd2--3/2005, and ds--3/2006
We're encountering this in our household lately too. My dd is 4.5 and has been potty trained for about 2 years without any accidents. She's had five in the past week. I've noticed that it tends to occur when she's absorbed in an activity, either playing with friends/relatives or having computer time. I'm working on getting her to go to the bathroom as soon as she feels the urge. I hate to say it, but I've resorted to bribery again (ie. one week without accidents equals special craft prize).
I am going through the exact same thing with my 4.5 son. He is way too absorbed in the activity and waits until the last minute. I'm thinking they think they will miss something if they go to the bathroom. He does a trickle pee and realizes he has to go and then runs to the bathroom. lol It is so frustrating.
