Changing lifetime want

Is the only non-mod way to change the Lifetime want is to use the ReNuYuSenso Orb? My Sim has the family aspiration but her lifetime want is to raise 20 puppies or kittens which is NOT going to happen. So do I have to have her use the Orb a few times (switching her aspiration to something else and then back again) to get her a better LTW?

    Hi :)
    I think it's the safest without a mod.

    I use cheats. This won't corrupt your game or anything.

    Ctrl+Shift+C to bring up the typing box, then type and press enter after: boolprop testingcheatsenabled true
    Shift-click your Sim and click Spawn-> Sim Modder. When it spawns, it'll look like a baby.
    Click on that and Wants and Fears... -> Lifetime -> and choose to Cycle through all Lifetime Wants or just the ones for Current Aspiration

    If you get a lifetime want you like, sell the baby, and turn off the testing cheats by doing: boolprop testingcheatsenabled false

    I do this a lot, because I'm rarely satisfied with what the game randomly gives me.

    Another tip for children growing up to teens: the LTW won't be rolled at once, it's rolled when either
    1) you fulfill a want, or
    2) when you save and return to the hood, then enter the household again.

    If you use the second method, return to the household and don't like the LTW, you can quit without saving and return for a reroll. When you get an LTW you like, save to lock it in. :)
