It would be even more fun for you if your daughter plays and the two of you play together on a women's team some years down the road. Either way, keep it up and enjoy yourself. Your never too old to start - I did at 33.
I wish I could get her to play, but she will have none of it. My son is the hockey player, and my daughter plays piano and recently she started playing Ultimate frisbee with her dad, and she is really good at both of those things. She really would like to be good at skating (because it bothers her that her little brother is better at something), but she is so timid on the ice, and refuses to wear any padding (though I do make her wear a helmet). She just doesn't have the nerve to push herself enough to progress. If she didn't have the other stuff going on, I'd put her in some lessons, but I really don't think skating is her thing. It just makes her all pissed off and frustrated. I'll have to wait until she wants it.
