My 5yr old still has damp panties some days

I feel like I am failing as a mom and a successful pottiy trainer. My daughter is 5 and almost every night when I give her a bath her panties are damp. I dont know if she is just too busy to take time to potty. I try to remind her every two hours or so, but she says she doesnt have to go. She doesnt soak herself it is like she is just trying to hold it in. I have tried so hard to encourage her, but I am starting to get discouraged myself. She is in Kindergarten and she never does this at school, just at home. I need ideas!

Maybe its because she doesn't want to stop playing with you because she thinks waht you're doing with her is so much fun or it could be that she is busy and she doesn't want to go so she tries to hold it in or maybe she's scared to go by herself because at school she's around her friends and at home it might be her going by herself.. If you know what time she nomarlly goes try to continue to put her on the potty so she can get back into the routine...
