yup, pretty typical time for "potty pauses" It's a big developmental stage, with lots of new stuff going on (walking, talking, etc) and pottying goes to the bottom of the priority list =)

Try to catch the easy pottying times (just after nap, after eating, etc, whatever are the easy times for the 2 of you) and make sure she's got lots of potties available where she hangs out and just keep talking to her about it ("oh, you got your pants wet, let's change those and next time we'll get it in the potty so you can stay dry") Use as much back-up diapering/training pants as you need to stay relaxed - I started a 3 strikes rule with my oldest when I figured out that by the 3rd miss of the day, at least one of us was not up for pottying right then so the pants would go on until I felt more with it ;-).

And maybe do a search for "potty pauses" or "potty strikes" to see how normal it is and how you've done nothing wrong :thumb
