    "wonder if" quesiton

    I can't help but wonder if Mom left the card out so she could open a can of worms in my lap.

    Hi, I saw the sentence above from an article, the writer saying that she found from the card that her mom is a gay. But I can't understand the sentence above. Does that mean she is thinking her mom might intentionally have put the card in a public place?

    Yes, it seems so.
    Moreover, as far I can judge, she is more or less specific about what Mom's intent might have been: to cause problems for her.
