My daughter vs. Church tradition

Who do you think is right?

My daughter (5 years old) said that Jesus probably gave it to the poor.

Church tradition says that the gold was used by Joseph to pay for expenses when they fled to Egypt; that Jesus' parents kept the frankincense and gave it to the officials in the synagogue when Jesus came home to Nazareth and preached his first public sermon; and Mary kept the myrhh and gave it to be used for embalming in the tomb.

So, who is right?
