Where was Aryaa-chyan before----?

Aryaa asks a lot of questions these days. All children are very curios and when they reach this age and gain some grasp in language there is an explosion of questions.

Aryaa's kindergarten was closed due to some public holidays and Aryaa was home with her mother for last few days. This is the 'story' her mother told me yesterday evening.

She asks so many strange questions these days. I was arranging the things and she was playing in the other room.

"Mama loves Aryaa-chyan?" She suddenly came to me and asked. She seemed very serious.
"Yes of course, dear!"
"Where was Aryaa-chyan when Aryaa-chyan was small?"
"With Papa and Mama."
"Ehh---, Aryaa-chyan was with Papa and Mama in birth too?"
"Yes."
"Where was Aryaa-chyan before that?"
"Hmm----Well, in Mama's womb." I answered pointing to my stomach. She doesn't know the difference between stomach and womb, I am sure.  The same word ONAKA is used for both in spoken Japanese.
"Ehh---! How did Aryaa-chyan went there?" She was surprised. I was surprised even more with her question and couldn't think what to answer.
-----------
"Papa, Mama loved Aryaa-chyan very much." She started answering herself. "So prayed to God and God put Aryaa-chyan in Mama's stomach."

I was relieved but surprised with her answer. Aryaa then went back to the room and continued her play.

We both don't remember explaining to her like that. Her teachers in kindergarten may have said or  she may have assembled the answer totally herself. We have mentioned God many times when we are totally unable to answer her questions. 

She will know the correct answer for her question when she becomes an adult. But isn't her answer already the 'most correct' one?
